Carer interview questions

When you apply for a position in the care services sector, you can expect to be asked a wide range of interview questions. Caring for older or vulnerable people is a big responsibility, so employers want to ensure you have the right skills and attributes.

We have put together some examples of carer interview questions to help you feel more prepared for your next social care interview. While we’ve included some typical responses that we would look for when hiring our own carers at Prestige Nursing & Care, you should always draw your answers from your own experience.


We believe that quality, outstanding care comes from investment and recognition of our team. This is why everything we do is designed to support and empower our carers to provide exceptional care to our clients. This ‘carer first’ mentality is reflected in our flexible approach to working and in the industry-leading training we provide.

We look after our carers by offering:

  • Hourly rates that are usually higher than other agencies
  • A flexible way to work locally – the hours you want when you want them
  • Working with a local team at a local branch
  • A variety of work matched to your skills and interests
  • Ongoing training and development
  • A Member Advantages programme offering retail discounts
